So all those people that were convinced we had signed Podolski may have been wrong. Arsenal did their usual bit where you weren't sure and thought Wenger was playing it cool, well I believed the stories were made up by our 'make up a renewal story' department, and news of him wanting to go to Lazio seem to back that up.
I hope you weren't suckered.
Other news is that Vertonghen wants to play for us. That's great, I hope it's true and I hope we nail him to a wall before he changes his mind, he is just what we need.
All we now need is for the chavs and spuds to start losing, I think they will, City want to win the league so they will smash the chavs, the spuds may have the easier run in but we lost to an awful lot of the lower in league teams, so I see no reason why they won't now, especially after their last few games, losing 3 on the spin is hard to come back from, we know all about that don't we?
Hazard will not be coming to Arsenal, he costs too much and is already a star so Wenger can't take the credit for him.
Arsene, spending £8mil on a 16 year old (Theo) and waiting 7 years for him to get better is no different to paying £30million on an already proven 21 year old now. Oh except we don't have to wait 7 years, the costs are still the same.
I know, that's too obvious isn't it!
For those out there that say we have to get behind this team, I know, I am always behind this team, I support Arsenal. However there comes a time when someone in the club needs to point out a few obvious things and as no one dares to stand up to the manager, I have to and until he changes things or his ruinous policies, then I most certainly will.
Next up Everton, tough game but Liverpool beat them, and we beat Liverpool, providing we play with the same pace and commitment, I can't see anyone beating us in the run in, third place beckons and it's the first time all season I have felt this confident, don't forget, although 4th spot isn't a trophy, 3rd most definitely is!
Have a great day Grovers, the sun has got his hat on!
